    Wonderful company and great IP, and great people, but culture is changing for the worst

    Field Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the best and brightest work here. Culture of high intelligence and innovative thinking. Great training. Effective processes. Household name, so easier time getting in the door.

    ConsPTO is frowned upon in sales. Moving from a strategic company to transaction based. Territories are shrinking and earning potential decreasing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't run your tenured AE's off. Realize that territories run in cycles, and some markets are emerging versus others that are mature. Let your employees work from home some and take PTO. Running people too hard and too fast burns them out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice people, good work. Unfortunate, bad upper management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsThe work is fun and challenging. The people are too. It is a financially stable, growing company with travel opportunity.

    ConsUpper management made a really bad management decision this week. This has left a bad taste in a lot of mouths (see below: Advice to Management)

    Advice to Senior ManagementMorale should be considered more by management. More specifically, back in December our group was celebrated and given t-shirts in honor of reaching $200M. It was very nice to be recognized for our achievements and success. Six months later, working from home on Fridays was taken away from us with no "reason" or logic given. Is this how you treat a successful team? Why is it necessary to remove a very important "perk" from a very productive group of people? How does upper management think this will not effect morale?

    A decision such as this makes me lose faith in our management team and question all decisions being made.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
